Weathered Barns

Weathered Barns, 11"x14", Acrylic on Canvas, $600
This is the second in my new barns series.  This set of barns is in Fairfax, a small town about 10 miles away.  I was drawn to the variety of blues and purples that I saw in the weathered wood.  I underpainted the entire canvas with magenta to give it a unifying purple boost.  After I got about half way through the painting, I realized I needed to move some walls and change some trim paint, so the barns no longer completely reflect "what was there".

Note: This painting is currently on display in the Art Barn at the Shelburne Museum in Shelburne, VT.  It can be purchased by calling the Museum Store (802) 895-3346 ext. 3144) or by e-mailing
